It was Charlie ‘Tremendous’ Jones who said, “You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.”
Well, 15 years ago Gabrielle read a book that changed the direction of her life. It was so good that she read another two books by the same author, Steve Denning, the former Senior Executive of the World bank. The titles were The Springboard, Squirrel Inc and The Leaders Guide to Storytelling.
The content she read prompted her to leave corporate life and start a company teaching leaders how to share stories.
Fast forward a few years and Gabrielle got the opportunity to see Steve speak. Then after another couple of years passed, she had a coffee with him on one of his trips to Australia. You may be interested to know that Steve was born and raised in Sydney.
If Gabrielle's storytelling training has had a positive impact on the way you lead and communicate, then you have Steve Denning to thank for that. We hope you enjoy this podcast interview with Gabrielle's professional idol and the irrefutable father of storytelling in business.
